Rocket League Championship Series Season 6 is beginning in two weeks. In order for you to get ready, we’ll take a look at the rosters for all teams and see which teams added new life to their team, what teams released players and what possibly made them be released.
Two new teams join the ranks of the RLCS in the North American division. Allegiance and FlyQuest both won their respective promotion playoff matches to be promoted into the RLCS from the Rival Series. FlyQuest added the former Genesis player Braden “Pluto” Schenetzki to the team as a substitute. FlyQuest and Allegiance are both continuing with their same lineup from last season to continue to compete this season.
After a heavy team break-up, Evil Geniuses released Robert “Chrome” Gomez from their team and signed former Ex-Dignitas teammate Reed “Chicago” Willen. This new addition sets up Evil Geniuses to possibly repeat their Top Four North American finish from the previous season and potentially even get into a higher position.
Former Ghost Gaming player Matt “Matt” Dixon was released from his contract in order for Ghost Gaming to sign RLRS standout from Spacestation Gaming, Michael “Memory” Moss. Matt now moves onto Rogue as a substitute.
Rogue continued to make moves in regards to improving their team. According to his former teammate Jacob “Jacob” McDowell, throughout Season Five, Trevor “Insolences” Carmody was not a class-act of a teammate. Rogue, therefore, released Insolences from his contract and signed up-and-comer from the RLRS, George “Joro” Kolev.
NRG eSports and Cloud9 both did not make any changes from the previous season. NRG and Cloud9 both finished in the Top Four of the North American division of the RLCS. While NRG was one win away from winning the championship of Season Five.
In the European division, Team EnVyUs is now the classic team, WeDemGirlz after EnVyUs decided to separate from the roster. Into RLCS Season 6, Otto “Metsanauris” Kaipiainen is added to the team after David “Deevo” Morrow was let go. Both Jordan “EyeIgnite” Stellon and Remco “remkoe” den Boer remain on the team.
Renault Vitality added two new players to their team. They added fifteen-year-old Kyle “Scrub Killa” Robertson and Florian “Neqzo” Esnault as their substitute. They removed Sandro “Freakii” Holzwarth to make room for Scrub Killa. Scrub Killa has had history playing with both Vitality players: Philip “Paschy90” Paschmeyer and Victor “Fairy Peak” Locquet.
The former team of Servette Geneva eSports, Kevin “Skyline” Carvalho, Joseph “MummiSnow” Salameh and Alex “Alex161” Ernst were promoted to the RLCS European division after they won their promotion matches against exceL Esports and Team Secret. After all players left the franchise, Skyline and Alex161 added former Team Secret player, Maik “Tigreee” Hoffmann to replace MummiSnow in order to try and build better chemistry between all three players. They now sport the name of mousesports for the RLCS Season 6.
The final team to discuss is Fnatic who won their matches in the promotion playoffs to stay in the RLCS for another season. Their team remains mostly the same from the previous season with Nicolai “Maestro” Bang and Nicolai “Snaski” Vistesen Andersen continuing to be on the team. They replaced Alexander “Sikii” Karelin with former Servette Geneva player, MummiSnow. This move should be a helpful addition to a team trying to get out of the last place finish they had previously.
All in all, a lot of teams added pieces that could help them contend for a playoff spot for the RLCS Season Six Championship series. I feel that WeDemGirlz helped themselves by adding Metsanauris to their team to reinvigorate their play and continue to be in the Top Four of their division. I also feel that Rogue and PSG both helped their teams by getting rid of unwanted distractions to their teams in Bluey and Insolences both after having lackluster years prior.
